Capo 2

VERSE 1:
G
Ten years ago, on a cold dark night,
          D                         C         G
there was someone killed 'neath the town hall light.
G
There were few were at the scene, but they all agreed,
         D                       C        G
that the slayer who ran looked a lot like me.

VERSE 2:
G
The judge said, 'Son, what is your alibi?
            D                   C                 G
If you were somewhere else then you won't have to die.'
G
I spoke not a word though it meant my life,
          D                      C             G
for I had been in the arms of my best friend's wife.

CHORUS:
    C           G           C          G
She walks these hills, in a long black veil.
    C         G               C           G
She visits my grave, when the night winds wail.
G             C      G     C      D          G
Nobody knows, nobody sees. Nobody knows, but me.

VERSE 3:
G
The scaffold is high, and eternity near,
    D                      C          G
she stood in the crowd and shed not a tear.
G
But sometimes at night when the cold wind blows,
     D                    C             G
in a long black veil, she cries o'er my bones.

CHORUS:
    C           G           C          G
She walks these hills, in a long black veil.
    C         G               C           G
She visits my grave, when the night winds wail.
G             C      G     C      D          G
Nobody knows, nobody sees..nobody knows, but me.

OUTRO:
C      D         G    C      D         G
Nobody knows but me...nobody knows but me. (Fade.)
